No, it's not so easy.

If i run the MythTV setup and add a DVB-card, it writes "Could not open card #0".

It looks like there is no DVB driver instaled with pluto. The folder /dev/dvb/ doesn't exist.

DVB drivers for the most of the well-known cards are already included into kernel (since 2.4 I think). So, you should check your system to understand why your cards is not recognize by Linux. It's better do to using DVB utils not Pluto. After your card will be in the system (you should see message into dmegs output and /dev/dvb of course), try to setup MythTV or VDR.
